Perfect accommodation and lovely owner

5 of 5
We booked this property for 10 nights mid June 2017 for 3 adults and an infant. My wife and I have worked previously for a combined 10 seasons overseas for a U.K. tour operator and as such are aware of potential trip wires while being open minded to a degree to local culture / acceptable health and safety standards. So here is our honest opinion of this choice of apartment. In a nutshell it was perfect for our needs and exceeded expectations from before we even arrived. Carman (the owner) is organised beforehand, helpful and polite on arrival and clearly takes pride in the facilities she rents out. Nothing is too much hassle and arranged with a smile; a cot, toys for our 18 month old daughter and even a bottle of vino for us. The rooms are a decent size and have built in wardrobes and plenty of storage. Ceiling fans in each room too, with air con is the front room which controls the temperature of the apartment. Front room is big with everything you need.. wifi, tv and even online streaming of U.K. tv which was unexpected. From microwaves, hair dryers, to washing machine and ironing facilities this place is literally home away from home. What makes this place great in our opinion is the location and security. Gated private complex (with beautiful gardens and a fab private pool rarely used by anyone other than us!), then into our apartment block also locked, up to 2nd floor (by lift), iron gate / the double locked solid wood door... no one is breaking in here! No noise at night either which was a bonus. The location is ace. With a pram and 65 year old mother we left here and we're at the beach in 10 mins.. turn left and you walk to Toremolinos, turn right and it's the marina. Within 10 mins you can have typical Brit / Irish bars, Spanish bars restaurants beach bars, clubby bars or Burger King, that's the beauty of staying here; it caters for everyone. Carman I thank you so much and have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. If you are considering this apartment take my (well educated) word for it that you won't be sorry you made this decision, it's perfect! Russell, Gail, Darcey & Mo.

Tranquillity at its best

5 of 5
An away from it all family holiday! Wonderful villa nestled in a scenic mountain setting with fabulous views. The villa itself is exactly as seen in the pictures. Our children were older and enjoyed the pool and the wifi. This would also be a great location for younger families. We made good use of the BBQ and Pizza oven. No oven in the house. Local shop approx 5 km south of the villa. Half an hour drive to Malaga. Therefore a car is essential. The main road from Malaga to the villa is very good - lots of curves and bends but a good surface. This is a Spanish speaking area but everyone was very friendly and helpful. We had a fantastic week and I would be very happy to return again!
